    Today i received my OCA certificate but not my OCA card.
    Not all of the tracks come with cards. I have no idea which do and which don't I have a handful of the things. Most are sitting in the same file-folder that has the certificate. Others have slipped out and fallen to the bottom of the filing cabinet drawer as they tend to do when I pull the folder out to put in new certificates. I don't actually carry the cards around with me and can't imagine why anyone would.

    If you were going to get one -- it would have been in the same packet as the certificate.

    Beware of the reasoning process. It is important for DBA have correct reasoning processes or his/her database may be down or corrupt.

    The exam he passed was probably 1z0-047 which would have received an SQL OCE (oracle certified expert) and as have been pointed out by Justin on {thread:id=2454477} in general (and there may be exceptions) OCP and OCE currently (and it is subject to change) receive cards, and OCA success kits do not. I rememberthis being discussed authoratively on a thread about a year or so back; I am not bothered enough to search it.

    I can confirm that OCAs do not receive ID cards. Your friend probably received a card for SQL Expert.
